4th Poetry Chapbook now in pre-sales! 🧡 https://www.finishinglinepress.com/product/pacific-prescription-by-magdalena-louise-hirt/ #sealoningselkie #sailinglife #poetry #fuckleukemia#100percentmatch #beatit 🧡 It’s my Pacific story, 2nd of 3 books, that tackles my brother’s diagnosis of leukemia, and my 100% match to give him a restart at life.



Here is the synopsis, and (ps) if you ordered Pacific Pieces, FLP is a bit behind schedule, but it is being printed and will be in the mail shortly! 🙏🏼🤓 Thank you!



A storm, engine problems, or a ripped sail can halt your sailing dreams. For this traveling family of six, it was not weather, mechanics, or techniques, it was leukemia. From the middle of the Pacific, after the Marquesas, the Tuamotu Atolls, and Tahiti, sailing had to come to an abrupt stop. Just living life became the challenge. Poet Magdalena Hirt and her family stayed State-side to save her brother who was diagnosed with AML Leukemia, and then returned to continue their journey onwards to Moorea and Bora Bora. In Pacific Prescription: Leukemia Cyclone, there are poems of dreams and poems of survival. In sequential order, these poems tell the story of the ocean and sacrifice.
